PostPosted: Tue Nov 08, 2005 11:36 pm    Post subject: WRTP54G - Network Disruptions and Dropped Calls Reply with quote Back to top



I have a Linksys WRTP54G connected to a Linksys BEFSR41v2 router which in turn is connected to my cable modem.

I got a new Vonage connection recently and have been facing dropped call problem nearly for every other call, incoming or outgoing. The call gets dropped after 10-15 mins.
I checked my network, and the internet also goes down.

My Linksys W router stops communicating with my Linksys B router. I get a 'Request timed out' for my B router, however I can ping the W router just as fine. The network comes up again if I wait for 10-15 seconds.

I have been following the group posts. I have the new .55 firmware on the W router. Incidentally, I havent been facing any CID problems, but the dropped calls are getting too much for me.
The results from testyourvoip.com gives my network 4 out of 5.

Will appreciate if someone could help.

is it necessary to have the B router? if so, try switching them around (cable to W to B)

We have a fairly large house and the B router is where the cable modem is connected (on the top floor). The W router is on the grnd floor because of the Vonage phone. In fact, there is a second Netgear wireless router connected to the B router to cater to those parts of the house where signal from W router is weak.

It would be very inconvenient to change the settings.

Instead of routers, why not get wireless signal repeaters on every
floor? SInce that's a signal solution, it would be less management than having multiple routers.

Yes, thats a good idea.

The issue is that I already had a Netgear wireless router earlier. After I got Vonage, I got a W router as the Netgear router did not have any phone ports. Now, replacing the Netgear router and buying a new signal repeator would not be very economical as right now the whole house has wireless access (including the far side of the backyard) from the two routers.

If, however, having two routers is causing the problem, then it can be done. But when my network goes down, I can still access the W router and the Netgear router and the internet thru the Netgear router. Its the link between W and B that goes down. It comes back again after 10-15 secs, and it happens only during calls, never else. So, I am guessing two routers is not whats causing the problem.

It sounds like it could be either a routing problem, not sure. Could we see a simple diagram of your setup? Oh, you verified only one router is doing DHCP, right?

All three routers have DHCP enabled (because of the continuous change in the number of comps connected), however both the wireless routers and the printer have static IPs.

Sorry, the formatting was ruined after posting

Basically,

Cable Modem is connected to Linksys BFSR
Linksys BFSR is connected to Linksys WRT, Netgear wireless and 2/3 PCs
Linksys WRT is connected to 2/3 laptops, one HP printer and Vonage phone
Netgear wireless is connected to 1/2 laptops

You have two wireless units. Are you sure they're not interfering with one another?

Both the wireless routers were in use for a week before the Vonage line was activated. I had no problems then

Also, the network goes down only when during a phone conversation, that too for a short while Rest of the time, it works just fine. Also, both the wireless routers are accessible during the network failure. Its the link between the WRT and BFR that goes down, which is wired.

As far as interference goes, I am not sure if thats an issue. My cubicle in office has at least 15 different wireless connections, all managed independently, available from all across the facility. And all of them work just fine.
